Google has been making waves in the social networking pool lately with the testing phase of Google+. Up until now it was only available on Android handsets, mobile sites and the usual desktop.
As the title says, Google has released the app for the iPhone. It looks the same as the Android version. It seems that there are still a few bugs that need to be worked out, with some crashing reported on the iPhone.

Well it was bound to happen with Android and iOS taking over the smartphone market share at an alarming rate. Yes I might be a little biased since I use an Android handset.
In South Africa I don’t see RIM losing any ground to the likes of Android and iPhone smartphones though. That would be thanks to BBM and the free internet service that they offer with every Blackberry.
It would probably take quite a while for Blackberry smartphones to lose significant market share in South Africa.
Anyway, the shares are falling because RIM was not able to meet their target for Q2, I’d be pretty bummed if I was a share holder and the company didn’t perform as they said they would, despite their $4.9 billion in revenue and $695 million in profits from Q1 2011.
They might be able to recover a little bit with Blackberry 7 OS coming out, and the Playbook.
